The Bottom Line

A highly-rated but mostly unknown drip coffee maker, the Redline MK1 Brewer has a 40 oz water reservoir and one cool feature: a "Parking Brake" at the bottom of the filter basket to stop brewing and siphon a quick cup.

Redline MK1 Brewer Overview

Ever hear of this coffee maker?

Most people haven’t, and that makes it an underdog contender on this list of the best coffee makers.

Once again, this isn’t a fancy coffee maker by any means — it just has the one on/off switch — but it does offer pre-infusion and one other feature I really like: A “Parking Brake” lever at the bottom of the filter basket that modulates the flow of coffee into the carafe.

Plus, that powerful 1560W heating element gives you coffee that’s genuinely hot. Not just kinda hot.

On the downside, it’s primarily made of lightweight plastic and feels a little flimsy.

Pros

  • Powerful 1560W heating element makes truly hot coffee
  • “Parking Brake” lever at bottom of filter basket modulates the flow of coffee into the carafe
  • Relatively low price point

Cons

  • Don’t like the glass carafe only option
  • Overall feel is a little flimsy
  • Carafe lid is non-removable, meaning you can’t use it to fill the water reservoir
